You won't be able to escape this
book, once you start to read it. For
the day, the two days, or the three
days-however long it will take you
to read it-it will become an integral
part of you and you will become
complete slave to its mastery.
The story, like Hergesheimer's
"The Three Black Pennys," treats of
three generations, dealing mostly
with the second, but in all three weav-
ing closely and finely and in beautiful
patterns the influence of Naomi, of
the first generation.

and poignant loveliness with which the
author writes it.
Naomi Kellogg and Joe Copeland
love each other passionately, but there
is parental objection: s o they meet
at a hidden sanctuary along the brook
that flows through their farm lands.
Joe is killed by a farm machine, blast-
ing the young romance, leaving only
his unborn child. The parents, horror-
stricken at their daughter's mis-
chance, in righteous calvinistic ac-
tion improvise a hasty marriage with
Caleb Evans, a family friend. The
Evanses move west, where little
Brook (named after the brook that
ran through the farms and haunted
Naomits memory) is born.
Brook Evans, the daughter, grows
up in ignorance of the fact that her
father is Joe Copeland and not Caleb
Evans. When she finally is told of
the fact, she turns against her moth-
er and idolizes Evans with a faith-
ful devotion that is both startling and
wondrous. This turn of affairs is
only one of the surprise climaxes.
Naomi, panic-stricken because she
fears that her daughter will fall en-
tirely under the spell of her pedantic
father, wary lest her daughter allow
herself to live a life of hopeless wait-
ing for life, conspires with a former
sweetheart of Brooks' to elope with

"I was much intrigued by the invitation to make
a blindfold test of your leading brands of Ameri-
can cigarettes, to see how they compared with
each other and with those I had smoked abroad.
Could one really taste the difference? I wondered.
"But when I was handed these cigarettes, one by
one, I realized at once that there was a difference
and that the test was conclusive. One cigarette
was so much more appealing, so much more
delicate in flavor. Oh, and so much smoother!
"When the test was over and I was told that the
cigarette of my choice was OLD GOLD I understood
at once why this cigarette is so popular among
gny American friends."
